The race will include approximately 55 offshore powerboats, ranging from 30 to 50 feet in length. The SLR is needed to protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential hazards associated with the high-speed powerboat race. The special local regulation establishes a race area where all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels who are participating in the race, will be prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) Miami or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this proposed rulemaking. DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast Guard on or before April 8, 2022. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG– 2022–0135 using the Federal Decision Making Portal at https:// www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Table of Abbreviations CFR Code of Federal Regulations DHS Department of Homeland Security FR Federal Register NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking § Section U.S.C. United States Code VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 Mar 23, 2022 Jkt 256001 PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis On February 15, 2022, Cigarette Racing Team, LLC. notified the Coast Guard they would be sponsoring an offshore powerboat race on May 6, 2022 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and May 7, 2022 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The race would take place in the Atlantic Ocean, offshore of Miami Beach, FL and involve approximately 55 powerboats ranging from 30 to 50 feet in length. Approximately 500 spectator crafts are anticpated to attend the event. The COTP Miami has determined potential hazards associated with the high-speed boat race would be a safety concern for participants, participant vessels, and general public. The purpose of this rulemaking is to protect event participants, spectators, and vessels on certain navigable waters of the Atlantic Ocean, offshore of Miami Beach, FL before, during, and after the scheduled event. The Coast Guard is proposing this rulemaking under authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034. The Coast Guard is issuing this notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) with a 15-day prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant to section (b)(3) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 553). This provision authorizes an agency to publish a rule in less than 30 days before its effective date for ‘‘good cause found and published with the rule.’’ Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the Coast Guard finds that good cause exists for publishing this NPRM with a 15-day comment period because the Coast Guard was given short notice from the event sponsor, and this not a recurring event that would be listed in the existing annual marine event table as outlined in 33 CFR 100.702, Table 1. Therefore, it is impracticable to provide a 30-day comment period because we must establish this safety zone by May 6, 2022. A 15-day comment period would allow the Coast Guard to provide for public notice and comment, but also update the proposed regulation soon enough that the length of the notice and comment period does not compromise safety. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The COTP proposes to establish an SLR from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., on May 6, 2022 and May 7, 2022. The safety zone would cover certain navigable waters of the Atlantic Ocean beginning approximately 0.5 miles north of Government Cut and continuing north approximately 3.5 miles. The SLR extends approximately 2.5 miles offshore. The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, and the E:\FR\FM\24MRP1.SGM 24MRP1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 57 / Thursday, March 24, 2022 / Proposed Rules marine environment in these navigable waters during the event. The proposed regulation would prohibit all persons and vessels, except those persons and vessels participating in the race, from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the area unless authorized by the COTP Miami or a designated representative. Persons and vessels may request authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area by contacting the COTP Miami by telephone at (305) 535–4300, or a designated representative via VHF radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the race area is granted by the COTP Miami or a designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such authorization must comply with the instructions of the COTP Miami or a designated representative. The Coast Guard would provide notice of the special local regulation by a Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and on-scene designated representatives. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS IV. Regulatory Analyses We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders, and we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors. A. Regulatory Planning and Review Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits. This NPRM has not been designated a ‘‘significant regulatory action,’’ under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). This regulatory action determination is based on the following reasons: (1) The proposed special local regulation will be enforced for only 10 hours per day; a total of 20 hours; (2) although persons and vessels will not be able to enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area, without authorization from the COTP Miami or a designated representative, they may operate in the surrounding area during the enforcement period; (3) persons and vessels may still enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the regulated area during the enforcement period if authorized by the COTP Miami or a designated representative; and (4) the Coast Guard VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:36 Mar 23, 2022 Jkt 256001 will provide advance notification of the special local regulation to the local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF–FM. B. Impact on Small Entities The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601–612, as amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ‘‘small entities’’ comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit through the safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated in section IV.A above, this proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on any vessel owner or operator. If you think that your business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment (see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to what degree this proposed rule would economically affect it. Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–121), we want to assist small entities in understanding this proposed rule. If the proposed rule would affect your small business, organization, or governmental jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or options for compliance, please call or email the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. The Coast Guard will not retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard. C. Collection of Information This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 (Federalism), if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the National PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 16699 Government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. We have analyzed this proposed rule under that Order and have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 13132. Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under Executive Order 13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments) because it would not have a substantial direct effect on one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or Indian tribes, please call or email the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531–1538) requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the potential effects of this proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble. F. Environment We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland Security Directive 023–01, Rev. 1, associated implementing instructions, and Environmental Planning COMDTINST 5090.1 (series), which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321–4370f), and have made a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves an SLR lasting approximately 10 hours on two separate days that will prohibit entry of persons or vessels during the Luminsea Offshore Powerboat Race. This action is categorically excluded from further review under paragraph L61 of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01, Rev. 1. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this determination is available in the docket. For instructions E:\FR\FM\24MRP1.SGM 24MRP1 16700 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 57 / Thursday, March 24, 2022 / Proposed Rules on locating the docket, see the ADDRESSES section of this preamble. We seek any comments or information that may lead to the discovery of a significant environmental impact from this proposed rule. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PROPOSALS G. Protest Activities The Coast Guard respects the First Amendment rights of protesters. Protesters are asked to call or email the person listed in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section to coordinate protest activities so that your message can be received without jeopardizing the safety or security of people, places, or vessels.

Special Local Regulation: Luminsea Offshore Powerboat Race; 
Atlantic Ocean, Miami Beach, FL

AGENCY: Coast Guard, DHS.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coast Guard is proposing to establish a special local 
regulation (SLR) on certain navigable waters of the Atlantic Ocean, 
offshore of Miami Beach, FL, in connection with the Luminsea Offshore 
Powerboat Race. The race will include approximately 55 offshore 
powerboats, ranging from 30 to 50 feet in length. The SLR is needed to 
protect personnel, vessels, and the marine environment from potential 
hazards associated with the high-speed powerboat race. The special 
local regulation establishes a race area where all persons and vessels, 
except those persons and vessels who are participating in the race, 
will be prohibited from entering, transiting through, anchoring in, or 
remaining within unless authorized by the Captain of the Port (COTP) 
Miami or a designated representative. We invite your comments on this 
proposed rulemaking.

DATES: Comments and related material must be received by the Coast 
Guard on or before April 8, 2022.

ADDRESSES: You may submit comments identified by docket number USCG-
2022-0135 using the Federal Decision Making Portal at https://www.regulations.gov. See the ``Public Participation and Request for 
Comments'' portion of the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section for further 
instructions on submitting comments.

NPRM Notice of proposed rulemaking
Sec.  Section
U.S.C. United States Code

II. Background, Purpose, and Legal Basis

    On February 15, 2022, Cigarette Racing Team, LLC. notified the 
Coast Guard they would be sponsoring an offshore powerboat race on May 
6, 2022 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and May 7, 2022 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. The 
race would take place in the Atlantic Ocean, offshore of Miami Beach, 
FL and involve approximately 55 powerboats ranging from 30 to 50 feet 
in length. Approximately 500 spectator crafts are anticpated to attend 
the event.
    The COTP Miami has determined potential hazards associated with the 
high-speed boat race would be a safety concern for participants, 
participant vessels, and general public.
    The purpose of this rulemaking is to protect event participants, 
spectators, and vessels on certain navigable waters of the Atlantic 
Ocean, offshore of Miami Beach, FL before, during, and after the 
scheduled event. The Coast Guard is proposing this rulemaking under 
authority in 46 U.S.C. 70034.
    The Coast Guard is issuing this notice of proposed rulemaking 
(NPRM) with a 15-day prior notice and opportunity to comment pursuant 
to section (b)(3) of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) (5 U.S.C. 
553). This provision authorizes an agency to publish a rule in less 
than 30 days before its effective date for ``good cause found and 
published with the rule.'' Under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(3)(B), the Coast Guard 
finds that good cause exists for publishing this NPRM with a 15-day 
comment period because the Coast Guard was given short notice from the 
event sponsor, and this not a recurring event that would be listed in 
the existing annual marine event table as outlined in 33 CFR 100.702, 
Table 1. Therefore, it is impracticable to provide a 30-day comment 
period because we must establish this safety zone by May 6, 2022. A 15-
day comment period would allow the Coast Guard to provide for public 
notice and comment, but also update the proposed regulation soon enough 
that the length of the notice and comment period does not compromise 
safety.

III. Discussion of Proposed Rule

    The COTP proposes to establish an SLR from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., on 
May 6, 2022 and May 7, 2022. The safety zone would cover certain 
navigable waters of the Atlantic Ocean beginning approximately 0.5 
miles north of Government Cut and continuing north approximately 3.5 
miles. The SLR extends approximately 2.5 miles offshore.
    The duration of the zone is intended to protect personnel, vessels, 
and the

[[Page 16699]]

marine environment in these navigable waters during the event. The 
proposed regulation would prohibit all persons and vessels, except 
those persons and vessels participating in the race, from entering, 
transiting through, anchoring in, or remaining within the area unless 
authorized by the COTP Miami or a designated representative. Persons 
and vessels may request authorization to enter, transit through, anchor 
in, or remain within the race area by contacting the COTP Miami by 
telephone at (305) 535-4300, or a designated representative via VHF 
radio on channel 16. If authorization to enter, transit through, anchor 
in, or remain within the race area is granted by the COTP Miami or a 
designated representative, all persons and vessels receiving such 
authorization must comply with the instructions of the COTP Miami or a 
designated representative. The Coast Guard would provide notice of the 
special local regulation by a Broadcast Notice to Mariners, and on-
scene designated representatives.

IV. Regulatory Analyses

    We developed this proposed rule after considering numerous statutes 
and Executive orders related to rulemaking. Below we summarize our 
analyses based on a number of these statutes and Executive orders, and 
we discuss First Amendment rights of protestors.

A. Regulatory Planning and Review

    Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess the 
costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if 
regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize 
net benefits. This NPRM has not been designated a ``significant 
regulatory action,'' under Executive Order 12866. Accordingly, the NPRM 
has not been reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
    This regulatory action determination is based on the following 
reasons: (1) The proposed special local regulation will be enforced for 
only 10 hours per day; a total of 20 hours; (2) although persons and 
vessels will not be able to enter, transit through, anchor in, or 
remain within the regulated area, without authorization from the COTP 
Miami or a designated representative, they may operate in the 
surrounding area during the enforcement period; (3) persons and vessels 
may still enter, transit through, anchor in, or remain within the 
regulated area during the enforcement period if authorized by the COTP 
Miami or a designated representative; and (4) the Coast Guard will 
provide advance notification of the special local regulation to the 
local maritime community through the Local Notice to Mariners and 
Broadcast Notice to Mariners via VHF-FM.

B. Impact on Small Entities

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as 
amended, requires Federal agencies to consider the potential impact of 
regulations on small entities during rulemaking. The term ``small 
entities'' comprises small businesses, not-for-profit organizations 
that are independently owned and operated and are not dominant in their 
fields, and governmental jurisdictions with populations of less than 
50,000. The Coast Guard certifies under 5 U.S.C. 605(b) that this 
proposed rule would not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    While some owners or operators of vessels intending to transit 
through the safety zone may be small entities, for the reasons stated 
in section IV.A above, this proposed rule would not have a significant 
economic impact on any vessel owner or operator.
    If you think that your business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction qualifies as a small entity and that this proposed rule 
would have a significant economic impact on it, please submit a comment 
(see ADDRESSES) explaining why you think it qualifies and how and to 
what degree this proposed rule would economically affect it.
    Under section 213(a) of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement 
Fairness Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-121), we want to assist small 
entities in understanding this proposed rule. If the proposed rule 
would affect your small business, organization, or governmental 
jurisdiction and you have questions concerning its provisions or 
options for compliance, please call or email the person listed in the 
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section. The Coast Guard will not 
retaliate against small entities that question or complain about this 
proposed rule or any policy or action of the Coast Guard.

C. Collection of Information

    This proposed rule would not call for a new collection of 
information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3520).

D. Federalism and Indian Tribal Governments

    A rule has implications for federalism under Executive Order 13132 
(Federalism), if it has a substantial direct effect on the States, on 
the relationship between the National Government and the States, or on 
the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels 
of government. We have analyzed this proposed rule under that Order and 
have determined that it is consistent with the fundamental federalism 
principles and preemption requirements described in Executive Order 
13132.
    Also, this proposed rule does not have tribal implications under 
Executive Order 13175 (Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal 
Governments) because it would not have a substantial direct effect on 
one or more Indian tribes, on the relationship between the Federal 
Government and Indian tribes, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities between the Federal Government and Indian tribes. If 
you believe this proposed rule has implications for federalism or 
Indian tribes, please call or email the person listed in the FOR 
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section.

E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    The Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (2 U.S.C. 1531-1538) 
requires Federal agencies to assess the effects of their discretionary 
regulatory actions. In particular, the Act addresses actions that may 
result in the expenditure by a State, local, or tribal government, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector of $100,000,000 (adjusted for 
inflation) or more in any one year. Though this proposed rule would not 
result in such an expenditure, we do discuss the potential effects of 
this proposed rule elsewhere in this preamble.

F. Environment

    We have analyzed this proposed rule under Department of Homeland 
Security Directive 023-01, Rev. 1, associated implementing 
instructions, and Environmental Planning COMDTINST 5090.1 (series), 
which guide the Coast Guard in complying with the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4370f), and have made 
a preliminary determination that this action is one of a category of 
actions that do not individually or cumulatively have a significant 
effect on the human environment. This proposed rule involves an SLR 
lasting approximately 10 hours on two separate days that will prohibit 
entry of persons or vessels during the Luminsea Offshore Powerboat 
Race. This action is categorically excluded from further review under 
paragraph L61 of Appendix A, Table 1 of DHS Instruction Manual 023-01-
001-01, Rev. 1. A Record of Environmental Consideration supporting this 
determination is available in the docket. For instructions
